Helping You Seek Benefits for a Work-Related Injury
As a postal employee, you can be at risk for a wide range of work-related injuries. Letter carriers are always at risk of injury in a motor vehicle or pedestrian accident. In inclement weather, you still have to do your job and can be hurt on icy or slippery sidewalks or walkways, or by falling debris. You can develop repetitive stress injuries from carrying a heavy mail bag, or from walking a mail route five days a week or repetitively using your arms and hands.
On the other hand, if you work as a clerk or mail handler, you may be lifting trays or boxes and other items on a regular basis. You may be pushing or pulling large containers, you can sustain back, leg or joint injuries from lifting items that are too heavy or from the repeated motion of lifting and moving pieces of mail. Maintenance workers also suffer many injuries due to the physical nature of their work.
As a federal employee, when you are injured at work, any workers’ compensation benefits must be pursued through the Federal Employees’ Compensation Act (FECA), the federal government’s version of state workers’ compensation laws. FECA differs greatly from state statutes, so you want an experienced and knowledgeable federal employee injury lawyer to handle your case.
Seasoned Lawyers Representing Injured Postal Workers
We have protected the rights of post office employees for many years, representing hundreds of postal workers in injury claims. We handle all types of injury claims, including those involving repetitive stress or carpal tunnel syndrome, injuries to legs, back, neck, shoulders, arms or feet.
If you have received a notice under the National Reassessment Process, entitled “Notice—Employees Without MSPB Appeal Rights,” you should contact our office immediately. We can advise you as to how a notice that your agency has no work for you would affect your federal workers compensation claim.
We represent most injured postal workers on a contingency basis, only charging attorney fees if we recover compensation for you. Unlike many firms, the most we charge as a contingency fee is 20% of your recovery.
